Description
I will present an overview of the work that has gone into formulating a theory of tidal deformations and dynamics of black holes in general relativity. This includes a description of the tidal environment around a black hole, a description of the tidal deformation in terms of the intrinsic geometry of the event horizon, and a description of how the black hole can exchange energy and angular momentum with its tidal environment.
